Tweet of the Day

After shooting a four-over 75 in the first round, Colt Knost is not feeling good about his game at Bethpage Black. At 270.2 yards per drive, Knost ranks 197th out of 199 qualifying golfers, leading only David Toms and Darron Stiles. Fortunately, he has played well this year and went into the tournament 54th in the FedEx Cup standings, locking up a spot in Boston next week.

Quote of the Day

Good quote from Andy Sullivan in an article by the Nuneaton news:

BB: We’ve seen plenty of attention placed on Andy ‘Beef’ Johnston of late, as crowds and TV audiences lap up his nickname and charismatic personality. You have your own nickname, the Smiling Assassin, that pays homage to the smile you seem to retain throughout most of your televised rounds of golf. Does it grate?

Sullivan: “No, I don’t mind it. I think it’s difficult, sometimes, to keep up the bravado of it. It is a frustrating game, and you do get annoyed by it. When you do get annoyed, people see it and it’s hard. You want to keep the mantra up of being smiley on the golf course but it’s so hard.

“Sometimes I come off that golf course and I am having to sign autographs and do interviews and you don’t want to do it.

“It’s a difficult tag to have at times but it’s good for golf. I think players like me and Beef [Andrew Johnston] are good for golf. Golf is definitely short of a few characters and I think us sort of guys are making a difference.”
